Simple and good! On my VA3, watch button had to be on right side. Button on left side would reverse compass 180 degrees.

Hello you can configure your watch right or left hand and you must recalibrate the sensors. It is managed by garmin and not me

Doesn't work on vivoactive 3. I installed it and it just had the logo for connect iq, then I reinstalled it to get it to work and still, nothing. Broken app

Very weird for the removal of other widget you get there? For calibration it is in the watch sensors, because the widget only displays information from the sensor.

Je porte ma montre au bras gauche mais avec la couronne à gauche. Est-ce pour cela que l'affichage est inversé? Faudrait sinon ajouter un réglage pour cette éventualité...

Developer Reply

Il y a juste a définir la montre comme porté a gauche dans les réglages de Garmin. Garmin y a déjà pensé

Merci pour cette réaction très rapide. c'est parfait pour mon utilisation et j’espère aussi pour les autres. Cette façon de développer avec possibilité de faire multiple réglages est parfaite. Une boussole simple, épurée sans fioritures mais très efficace. Bravo Cordialement

At first, I tried to recalibrate so it will correct North and South being switched but it repeatedly said "failed" I don't see where I can make the setting switch by 180° like others have done, either on watch or app settings. But when I checked it after calibration it did switch it even tho it said it had failed. Works now anyways!!

Sorry, I did not understand your concern, I guess it was you wearing the right wrist watch no? Do not hesitate to send me an email. If I can help you it is with pleasure.

For Vivoactive 3 north and south is switched. I set 180 in the config and now it is working.

Developer Reply
May 2, 2019, Alexis_Lecanu

Answer to Garmin : When a user switches, the thing they want to do is re-calibrate the compass or it will be 180 degrees off for apps and things like the native heading data field, but that's really the only thing. Thank you for the information it allowed me to understand a little vivoactive

North and South were flipped incorrectly. Had to input 180 degrees in the settings to make it right. How did that happen?

Hello, can you write me to [email protected] to tell me which watch you use and in what condition because I never had this remark and no problem on my Fenix3

Funktioniert in der Regel ganz gut. Manchmal rotiert der Nordpfeil etwas orientierungslos in der Gegend rum. Aber dies meist nur innerhalb von Gebäuden, draußen gehts meist.

true north or magnetic ?

From the documentation it's the true north

Worked great until some days ago, now it doesn't recognize the real north and the arrow is stuck almost always in the wrong direction. How can I solve the problem? Thanks in advance.

Works well enough to be worth the space on my wrist. I don't seem to get completely accurate compass or bearing readings whether I leave the declination at the default 0, or if I set it to my known -11.91 degrees; perhaps this is a limitation of the vivoactive HR hardware base. It is certainly a good enough tool to prevent me from traveling East when I mean to go West on a gloomy, overcast day.

Sorry that this does not correspond 100% to your expectations. I try to do the best, but as far as the data is concerned I do not do any more treatment on it.

Looks nice, but was about 20degrees off from my iPhone compass, which I trust more.

I use the compass of the watch, I'm sorry if it does not work well.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
